Project SAT is a sector development initiative founded by Rohit Chokhani and which was funded by the Canada Council for the Arts. The inception of this project took place in 2015 through a residency at the National Arts Center - English Theatre with support from the BC Arts Council. Mentorship for the Residency was provided by Nathan Medd. Since then the project has evolved into a ten-phase strategic approach nationally for South Asian methodologies and creation. You can learn further details about these ten phases under our about Page. We've had a strong award-winning momentum for our work from 2015 to 2019. Unfortunately, our progress has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. This has given us an opportunity to take a pause and embark on planning the future strategic work for the project sat through the values of empathy, introspection, collaboration, gathering and building a new relationship with time. We are officially under a hiatus and hoping to return with a national strategy in early 2022. In the meantime feel free to reach out to us through our contact page with any questions, comments, or suggestions.
